the natural beauty of the
lowcountry. It was impossible
not to be impressed and then
drawn into it.

here at home, although I did escape
to the historic city of Savannah for
a day of shopping and people
watching. I am not much of a shopper,
but watching people is always so
entertaining . It really doesn't take
much to make me happy.
Minus today we have had rain
for days! My yard is now completely
spongy, the long dirt road I call a drive
is a muddy mess, and most of the garden has
been flooded. While we are still picking
squash most of the garden, except the okra,
is about finished.
To tell you the truth I am so tried of working
in the fields pulling weeds and putting up
produce so it will be nice to have a break
before the fall planting season begins.
I have been spending the rainy parts of the
day cleaning out closets and redoing a bedroom
for my soon to be sixteen year old. With only
one child left at home I thought it would be
nice to makeover a bigger bedroom for him
and really make it special. There is something
to being the last one at home ;)
Of course there has been knitting in my
days. I am still working on my LOG and
am now half way through Chart D, only
9,280 stitches to go before I can begin
the edging. This project is taking way
longer to complete than I imagined, and
while it is a joy to knit, I am impatient to
see the competed shawl.
Have you seen these maps? I am so intrigued.
All things knitting just fill me with joy. Oh,
and have you seen this and this? I think these
would be perfect for the mild, lowcountry
winter's we have here. I just need to finish
what I've already started before casting on
I hope you have had a great weekend and are
looking forward to a wonderful Monday
